For Love & Glory Summary

For Love & Glory: A Gripping and Emotional Story of Love, Loss and Undying Loyalty: One of the Tyneside Sagas by Janet MacLeod Trotter

Warm-hearted, fun-loving Jo Elliot grows up on Tyneside in the 1960's with her widowed father and older brother Colin and his friends. She has a special bond with the lively but rebellious Mark Duggan who is rejected by his violent father and ignored by his hostile brother Gordon, to whom he can never measure up. Mark longs for acceptance, but it is mature and masculine Gordon for whom Jo falls dangerously in love. Tragedy unfolds that leaves Jo outcast from her old friends. As she forges an acting career and tries to rebuild her life, war breaks out in the Falklands and both Colin and Mark are called up to fight before she can make her peace. As terrible family secrets come to light that have blighted the two families for years, Jo realises she must act to stop tragedy ruining the future. Emotional, entertaining and utterly engrossing, this magnificent saga explores the depths of love and undying loyalty. One of the Tyneside Sagas.

For Love & Glory Reviews

Four stars - Very good. Peterborough Evening Gazette A good read. Shields Gazette I have just spent a sleepless night because I couldn't put your book 'For Love and Glory' down. It is fantastic! H.B. - Peebles, Scotland. I just wanted to let you know I thoroughly enjoyed your book. I was totally absorbed to the very end. My congratulations. D.G. - Newcastle, England. I have just finished reading your latest book, which I enjoyed so very much. Wonderful! You tell such a good story that I can't wait to get to the next chapter - but then I don't want to finish the book too quickly. Thank you for yet another great read. I now look forward to your next book! M.C. - Durham, England. How very much I, and our 16 year-old daughter, have enjoyed 'For Love and Glory'. She literally couldn't put it down yesterday evening. We both loved the local recent history fascinating - please continue writing! C.B. - Brandon, England. I can't adequately begin to tell you how thrilled and impressed I am with 'For Love and Glory'. Throughout one identifies with Jo in all her trials, troubles and triumphs. The Falklands chapters are excellent; they ring true. Fortunately I finished the book reading it here on my own, when everyone else was out, because I was in tears at the end. What a really splendid book it is - so powerful, so wise, so compassionate, so deeply moving. One 'lives it' from start to finish. N.M. - Invernesshire, Scotland
